Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) is urging all Shire residents to examine the draft Strategic Planning Documents that are currently on public exhibition until 4pm Thursday 22 June and for those wishing to make a submission on the documents, to do so by the same time and date.
“The Community Strategic Plan, Operational Plan, Delivery Program, Long Term Financial Plan, Workforce Plan and Work Health and Safety Strategy have been developed following the extensive public consultation process and survey carried out earlier this year,” said LPSC Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope.
“The Community Strategic Plan represents the highest level of strategic planning undertaken by Council. Public consultation helped us identify the main priorities and aspirations of the community and from them to develop a clear set of strategies to achieve their vision for the future based on the social justice principles of access, equity, participation and rights.
“Now Council would like everyone to have a look at the documents that have evolved through this process and make submissions, if they desire, before the deadline and final consideration for adoption of The Plan and its implementation,” he said.
“The documents can be accessed at the LPSC Administration Office or here on the website”.
“Council feels that the consultation process has allowed for the development of a dynamic, living document that will determine the Shire’s direction well into the future. We thank all who have contributed to the process,” he said.
“Following consideration of public submissions, the Strategic Planning documents will be amended if necessary and formally adopted by Council at a meeting on Wednesday 28 June,” Councillor Hope concluded.
